  • The Sultana

    A fellow reader asks this question regarding the article Sultana: A Tragic Postscript to the Civil War from the August 1998 issue of American History magazine:

    About how fast did the Sultana sink?

    Anyone have any information?

    Although the article doesn't say, here's a good link to what happened:http://www.rootsweb.com/~genepool/sultana.htm

    It does say that the explosion was after 2 a.m. and that the ship was blown in two. And some of the eyewitnesses talk about it being dark the whole time, so I would say that it was less than 3 hrs. for the whole thing to occur.
